Anybody on here had them before? I just ordered some in a 235/40/18

Just wondering what kinda mileage I can expect, good pressure to run them, etc.. I will wright a review on them after I get them on and have tested them out a bit.

No I haven't run them but I have a buddy that says they run pretty well especially during heavy rain. No hydroplaining. Sweet ride man. I have a red SS Balt myself.

From the GTO forum, they get around 10k(driving nice) out of the tires. Just mess with the tire pressure, see whats best for you. I run 35 in my tires.

Ok so it sounds like ill probably get about 6k if I'm lucky LOL good to hear about the hydroplaining though. I was kinda worried about that with the tread design.

I'll update with pics when I get them on

Well thought id update this thread a lil bit.

I really like how well these tires grip. On my old tires I could break loose pretty easily at 40. These ones barely chirp. And just go! They will still spin a little bit from 20 but if they are warm they don't spin much at all.

Wear is as predicted, I have maybe 3k miles and they are at 1/2 tread.

Cornering is awesome on these tires! I really like the stiff sidewalls and they are pretty predictable when you do hit there limit.

I have the NT05s and have been running them since June of last year.
Awesome tire, grip is unbelievable compared to the stock Contis.
On a warm summer day, it is hard to break this tire loose and I'm dyno'd at 359whp/418tq.
Tread wear is actually not as bad as I was expecting. I was also counting on maybe 6K miles, but I've done probably 8K on them and they still have a reasonable tread left. I must say that I only did 2 track days on them, which helped Wink
I run Blizzaks in the winter months so they are getting a rest now. I figure with a little luck they will last me another season if I don't go to the track too often Smile

Yeah I know what you mean! Mine are getting a little better now that half the tread is gone, but especially if it's over 60 degrees, they handle like chewing gum Smile
